Back when I did their engagement session earlier this year I wrote about Nate's infectious laugh. That infectious laugh has rubbed off on Ashley, and on their wedding day, that is what they did, they laughed and enjoyed each other all day. I love so many things about this wedding starting with Ashley, she is absolutely beautiful and such a sweetheart. Taking pictures of her was a total treat for me. The fact that she wore purple shoes makes me adore her even more (purple is my favorite color and I firmly believe it looks great on everyone). :) She looked amazing in her vintage style dress from European Bridal.
Nate is a good friend of mine so it was extra nice to be able to celebrate with him and to catch up with tons of old friends. It is great to see people I care about find love. Being surrounded by love feels good. I am so thankful to have shared in their special day. It was classy, and elegant, and sweet.
I started the day with Ashley and the girls getting ready. Ashley's dog Bentley was by her side the entire time she got ready. Nate and all of his guys got ready at one of his groomsmen's house.
I like that Nate and Ashley borrowed family heirlooms to wear. Ashley wore her grandmother's sapphire ring and Nathan's grandmothers pearls. Nathan wore his grandfather's cuff links. Ashley's hair was so cute. Ashley Davis at Vintage Salon did a great job. The girl's dresses are from David's Bridal.This was my biggest bridal party so far. I am pretty proud of this one. :) The ceremony and reception were held at the Carnigie Event Center in Newport, Kentucky. It is loaded with cool spots for photos. What a great candid moment with Ashley's Dad. This is my one of my favorite bridal portraits ever! :)Yes! Their cake is homemade by one of Ashley's friends. It was delicious. Time to party!
